Save me from cute computers

Cute computers are bound to be my downfall. Today I started poking in the
first half of 20 pallets of ALR stuff going through a salvage yard, and
soon grew listless. Some great stuff, but the salvage guy was seeing
nothing but $$$, and that combined with large size to most items I liked
meant zero was going home with me. (like the giant dual PS rack unit)

Then like the nose of a fawn peeking out from a bush, I noticed a floppy
drive on the end of a keyboard. Curious. I fished it out and its a 386sx
built into a keyboard with a small power brick to make it go. The brand is
MicroBuilt on a couple, and Jamicon on a third (and all the power supplies)
and the model is SpaceSaver 386sx. Cute. Cute enough that I barely got to
keep one after finding all three. No idea on the cpu speed, 2 MB ram, about
65 MB HD, and a 1.44 floppy, all running some loan program over dos 6.2.

I'll save my Unisys micro tower for another post, anybody else have some
cute computers?
